Getting to Know You

First things first.  HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!


Now with that said I hope I am not too late to the party!  I thought I would give this one a go after learning that this is a weekly party being hosted over at Mannland5.  Not sure why these are fun to read but they are and you can read many more by popping over to Mannland5 for all of the links.  These are actually last weeks questions.  I am so behind in everything in my life this week so why not a post that is a week late???

I have no new projects currently underway and I have been working a lot lately.  Cheese never sleeps!  It’s my turn to host Mah Jong tomorrow night so you know what that means.  I might be doing some housecleaning on Mother’s Day!  C’est terrible!  But, it will be easier to sweet talk my family into helping me today don’t you think?   As I mentioned, these are last weeks questions.  I will be playing catch up.  But feel free to join in and answer them your self and be sure to stop by and visit Mannland5 for this weeks new questions if you want to play along.

1. If you could star in any movie genre..what would it be..romance..horror..comedy..suspense or action?

I like romantic comedies.  My favorite is French Kiss with Meg Ryan, Something’s Got to Give with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson and It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin (which came out on Tuesday, 4/27/10 BTW)

2. Do you recycle?

Yes, because it makes sense…not because Al Gore told me so. 

3. Have you ever been to a strip club?


4. Do you have a nickname?

Sometimes Lisa gets shortened to Leese…..My roomate from college still calls me Leeeeeeeeezzzzaahhh or Jane.  My daughter and her friend sometimes calls me Asil, my two friends named Karen from my hometown call me Lisa Jane, and my husband sometimes calls me LJ. 

5. What's a name you can't stand to be called?

I too have to go with “Ma’am”.  I know that is probably what I am but it makes me feel sooooo old.

6. What are your Summer staples?

Sandals, crop pants, and skorts.  And I like a white top of some sort.  Why???…when I am always spilling food or drink on myself would I insist on wearing white is a mystery to me.  I can’t help myself.  I like crisp and clean (at least I start the day out that way) white tops.

7. What was the last thing you bought for yourself?

A necklace off of Etsy.   And an Artic Orange Smoothie from The Juice Shop because my teeth are tender right now.  Only 24 more months of braces.  :)   And here is my necklace!  Kellen813’s Timeless Treasures is where Amber showcases some of her jewelry on her blog and she has a shop on Etsy where I found this fun necklace.  You can see all of her jewelry by visiting her blog and clicking on her Etsy Shop on her side bar.


8. Are you happy with your boob size? 

Most of the time…I would actually like them to be a tad smaller.  :)  Kind of personal I know!  You should see this week’s questions!

I am glad that you are joining in the party.

I think the questions are always fun and you learn a lot of fun things about the different bloggers.

Have a great Mother's Day!

I loved reading your answers, Lisa.

I don't like Ma'am either, for the same reason and I am 66 years old!:-)

Your summer staples are similar to mine. I like white tops too. Funny, because I am a spiller/dropper, also.

Happy Mother's Day!

My daughter tried called me Ma for a while and I had to tell her I hated it. Just call me Mom for heaven sakes!

I always spill and splash on my shirts too, so I now wear an apron, bibbed apron, around the house when cooking or eating. Saves me a lot of laundry!!

I wear lots of white tops, or other plain colors. Just don't like flowers on my clothing. ugh.

I would choose to star in a romance movie... something like The Notebook where I age from young to old. I look more like the 'old' lately.. HA!

I splurged on myself yesterday... but will blog about it so you can see it there soon.

Happy Mother's Day!

I am southern so ma'am never bothers me....but I can understand how it might if you're not used to does make me feel funny when a young adult calls me that!! ;D
Cute questions.....nice to learn more about you!

I loved getting to know more about you. And I shall check out this blog. It's new to me. Happy Mother's Day!

I like that necklace! The only thing worse than ma'am to me is to be called sweetie or sugar or honey by someone whom I don't know and/or is younger than me. I truly could slap any woman who thinks that is acceptable.

I love "French Kiss" too with Meg Ryan. Also, great little lamp on your previous post! Linda

I really enjoyed getting to know you. This was my first visit to you blog and I had intended only to say hello. I was lured into reading some of your earlier posts and stayed much longer than I planned. I love your gentle humor and will be back as often as I can to see what you have been doing. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
